HC Deb 13 November 1980 vol 992 c470W
Mr. Hordern

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish a table showing the total cost of wages and salaries and their percentage increase, for each year since 1970, of the local authorities and the water authorities, shown separately as appropriate.

Mr. King

The available figures are as follows:

Operational Programme 1979 –83 "published by the Docklands Joint Committee shows that 677 new dwellings are programmed for completion in 1980 –81 with a further 1,283 in 1981 –82. I can make no estimate of what effect, if any, circular 19/80 will have on this programme.
